Very rare, but maybe not very valuable. Misstrikes are a specialty among coin collectors. Buy or go see at a public library a publication called Coin World. There are ads in the back that will get you started. Most likely you have 1 of 2 pieces used to make a novelty item called a Magician's Coin. These sell regularly on eBay for a couple dollars, but if you just have the one piece I don't think it's worth anything. With so many people asking about coins like this, and no articles in major coin publications (to my knowledge) nor discussions between dealers about them, this has to be some kind of after-mint alteration. To be sure, you can get a free first-hand professional appraisal by ANACS by bringing your coin to any coin show they attend. Their list of shows is here : http://www.anacs.com/shows.html This could be a real error coin. If it is the correct weight (5 gm) it could have entered the press with a second coin which would have only the portrait of Jefferson and a blank reverse. The Redbook does not suggest a value for this type of error. You might try to search eBay to see if anything similar has been offered.

The obverse side of the 2005 Liberty nickel is stamped with a profile of President Jefferson on the left side, the words, "In God We Trust", the handwritten cursive word, "Liberty", and the year, "2005".

It's not a nickel. That denomination was first made in 1866. If it looks like a regular Jefferson nickel but is dated 1861 it's either an altered coin or a counterfeit. If it looks like something else it might be a medal or a token.

Thomas Jefferson is the president shown on the US 5 cent coin, commonly called a nickel. The design was recently changed to show a 3 quarters front view portrait of Jefferson rather than a profile as before.

The FS are the initials of Felix Schlag, who designed the coin. Those letters are on every Jefferson nickel from 1966 to 2004. Every single coin in that time frame is worth 5 cents.

The building on the back of the nickel is Monticello, which was the home of Thomas Jefferson (who is on the other side of the nickel).
